Big Sean just dropped the video for the Young Chop-produced “Mula” featuring French Montana. The Detroit rapper goes full blown Tarzan on a mansion chandelier in the video for this song, one of the biggest tracks off the widely successful mixtape named after his hometown city. If you’ve been in a coma for the past few months, head here and grab the Detroit mixtape now.
Meanwhile, in Ratchetville….know that song “Chariots of Fire” that’s been used in hundreds of slow motion movie scenes? It’s gotten the hip hop production treatment from our homies down south, courtesy of Grip Plyaz on “Jackie Joyner” featuring Aleon Craft & Trinidad Jame$. A bonus track on his Purp x Wind x Fire mixtape, but don’t expect much substance on the bars (song titles include Dayee Izz, Fugginhudumara, Died (In Yo Pussy), Wasaname, Child Support, & Fuck dat Hipster Shit). Jackie Joyner’s production is too infectious for its own good. If you want to download the mixtape, you can head here and name your price.
The West Coast army of producers League of Starz brings together Skeme, Problem, Freddie Gibbs, Jay Rock, Glasses Malone, & Bad Lucc for the hard hitting “Show Sumn”. After producing hits for artists like Tyga, French Montana, E-40, & Young Jeezy, LOS have announced their first compilation album LOS.FM coming early 2013. This track is the first single off that record.
Check out the youngblood DyMe-A-DuZiN, 20-year-old emcee from Brooklyn with raw talent and potential. “Swank Sinatra” brings together Joey Bada$$, CJ Fly, & Capital Steez for the first video/single off his debut mixtape A Portrait of Donnovan set to drop January 9th. A new deal with Warner Bros. combined with the old school, 90’s NY hip hop vibe his music inflicts, this kid could be one to watch out for in 2013.
Love drugs? Good chance you’ll love the remix of “Piss Test”, A-Trak’s single from the past summer. He brings on Flosstradamus to transform the tune 360 degrees with a powerful trap beat. Although Danny Brown wasn’t included this time around, Juicy J sticks around and merges with a massive entourage that includes Jim Jones, the eccentric Brooklyn crew Flatbush Zombies, and El-P. The most latter member of this remix lineup delivers the best bars on this beat by far – unfortunately, you have to hear everyone else first as he’s the last to come on. Not to diss JJ and the Zombies, but he really steals the show.
This will be part of a upcoming compilation album titled Loosies from the Fool’s Gold family. The record’s inaugural released will include 22 tracks personally curated by the label founders, A-Trak & Nick Catchdubs. Coming December 18th.
Last week I posted the new jam from Pusha T featuring Popcaan & Travis Scott, “Blocka”. He was in Jamaica at the time filming the video and just like that, the video is here for the public. You’ll find Pusha in the Jamaican slums surrounded by native gangsters, a chilling image when you realize a few of them don’t look any older than 13. Still no release date for his Wrath of Caine mixtape, only that it’s coming soon.
